What is Ciao Italia North America !
Ciao Italia North America’s vision is to be an international forum for the preservation, development and exchange of information, while protecting the knowledge, and inspiration of the True Italian Restaurants community in North America
Ciao Italia North America is governed by a team of valuable national and International experienced restaurant trustees who routinely submit nominations for establishments to review.
The Board then refines the selection to those who qualify for the ultimate evaluation.
Evaluations of establishments are based primarily on hospitality, gastronomy (authentic Italian ingredients, wines, and spirits) attitude, quality, cleanliness and service.
The decisions of Ciao Italia North America are based on whether the establishment demonstrates a commitment to genuine excellence and a dedication to promote and protect the philosophy of Ambassadors of True Italian Hospitality in North America.
